Sorry for the pics that chop off my face. All I had was the web cam in my work computer. 🙂
I used the basic JJ pattern, with a few changes:
- Lost the ruffles;
- Added 15″ onto the front and back and 17″ onto the sides;
- Added in-seam pockets (using the pockets from the Colette Beignet pattern);
- Made a self-fabric belt (as a finished belt, it’s 2″ wide and twice my waist);
- Made the sleeves long, narrowed the bracelet, and lost the bracelet slit/buttons (I have very narrow wrists and not enough buttons).
If you’re counting, that’s two nice pieces of clothing from one free pattern! Possibly more to come…
I used Kona Cotton in Slate from Sew, Mama, Sew. Same fabric, different color as my Beignet skirt. Love this fabric!
Can’t wait until the 50,000 words are done, and I can sew again, instead of just writing about sewing. 🙂
